"Megan McCrady was destined to play lacrosse.
"My dad played at Michigan State and my mom played in high school and both my parents have coached at the high school level for a long time," McCrady said. "It was kind of a given for us to play."
Though McCrady may have had a lacrosse stick in her hand almost from birth, it didn't guarantee success. But the end result couldn't have turned out any better for this Fox Chapel senior.
In her four years with the Foxes, she finished as the school's all-time record holder with 245 goals, 108 assists and 353 points. Despite being marked at all times, she capped off her stellar career by scoring 80 goals and chipping in 119 helpers as she led Fox Chapel to the WPIAL Class 3A title game and into the PIAA quarterfinals for the first time in school history."
